M92 is an excellent standout globular cluster in its own right in Hercules, but is often overlooked because of the proximity of its showpiece neighbor, M13. Note the dark globule that looks like a question mark without the dot at the 3 o'clock position near the edge of the cluster. The galaxy to the right of the cluster is MCG+07-35-058,
